Replying To Cockney_Cat:  "He wants to play for Crokes, that's the end of it. Who are you to tell him what he can and can't do?"
Only a suggestion and at NO time did I address the player in question directly or indirectly.

Replying To tommy k:  "If this transfer goes ahead, what's to stop Shane throwing his lot in with the Dublin footballers if he feels there's a greater chance of winning an AI with them than with Galway?"
Dont be raving Shane cant play for Dublin.He wasnt born there or play under age football there.

Clubs don't own players, if Shane Walsh wants to transfer to Dublin or anywhere else that is his perogative. People may not like it, but it his decision he has and continues to give so much of his time to the game.

What's all this talk about The Parish Rule? What is a parish? Is it an administrative area defined by the Catholic Church, the Church of Ireland or some other religious church or sect?
Many if not most of those who still cling to the parish rule in terms of THEIR club only attend church for weddings or funerals these days.

Is Ireland not considered to be a pluralistic society these days?

He can actually play for Dublin, once he plays a club championship game for Kilmacud. Remember Seanie Johnston?

It won't happen however.

Oh course he could if he wanted to. I think he'd have to transfer county, not 100% sure about it, but he could.

A few years ago a lad from Tyrone who played club football in Dublin played a league game with Dublin.

Surely there are examples of players lining out for counties they weren't born in or played underage for?
Most of the arguments put forward here in favour of walshes club move could also be used to support a switch to the dubs.
Tbh I think it probably makes sense for him to transfer counties.
I've a funny feeling most of the galway posters here supporting Shanes move because it's his prerogative etc would start singing a different tune all of a sudden lol.

Embarrassing stuff from his home club. Their stance is hindering, not helping.

I think its a disgrace if this transfer goes through. Lost a lot of respect for Shane over this. Goes against what most what the gaa is about.

This transfer issue is one the the unintended consequences of this so called split season. The advocates didn't think through the change fully. Who would have thought that after the final one of the two best forwards in the country would seek to move from his own club to one of the biggest, most successful and indeed wealthiest clubs in the country within 5 days. All seemingly perfectly legitimate. So much for the club being the backbone of the GAA.
In the past this could not have happened as club championships would have had at least one round before the county season finished.

Counties, as far as I know, were designated by the British government , and if not them then some other man made organisation. I assume we should ignore County boundaries then too?

My opinion on this is shane Walsh can transfer to kilmacud if he is living or working in Dublin,don't think there will be a problem if he proves an address in Dublin..I can think of a few high profile players,Ryan o dwyer in hurling,Declan Darcy in football..also if I'm right a lot of players transfered to Dublin clubs from northern clubs in the not to distant past..

1 chap seeking a club transfer is no reason to abandon the "split" season.

It's disappointing for Kilkerrin-Clonberne of course. They're a small club and rely so much on him. At the same time, if he's living in Dublin he's entitled to.
Plenty other high profile players have done the same. Paul Galvin transferred to Plunkett's and Chris Barrett moved from Belmullet to Clontarf.

My granduncle played for Belclare that day. Lovely man, but not a great footballer!

Hindering who? Club executive role is to look after the interests of the club
